What kinds of money might I receive?
The most common type of money BankMobile disburses to students are funds left over from financial aid awards, loans or grants after tuition has been paid. Students receiving these funds have usually requested this additional support to help with books and living expenses. Other types of money may include reimbursement for tuition overpayment or a dropped class. BankMobile uses the term “refund” but Bismarck State College may have another name for these funds, such as a disbursement, residual or a stipend.
How is my money delivered?
Delivery of refund money is a multi-step process. First, Bismarck State College draws funds from Financial Aid or other payment method and applies it to your student account.  Once this information is verified, it is sent to BankMobile. Once the specific refund information is received, it is processed and disbursed according to your refund preference selection.
Can I change my preference for receiving money?
Yes. Just log in to CampusConnection account, go under the Finance section and click on “Enroll in Direct Deposit”.  Here you will click on “Bismarck State College” and it will direct you to the BankMobileVibe log in page. Once logged into your BankMobile account select Refund Preferences from the Refunds menu option. Here you can make your new selection and click the Update Preference button to complete the process. Be aware that your new selection will only affect future money you receive from Bismarck State College.
